While even our own legal system, in the US, can certainly drag on, that tends to be for massive lawsuits, class-action sorts of things. Superior Court cases--which is similar to what you're doing--would move so much faster. It's as though your courts have zero respect for how the delay impacts you and your family. Here, the idea of expedience and the affect and consequence of absurd delays--for NO good reason, mind you--are taken into account and certainly argued by legal counsel for the affected parties. I'm surprised that your attorney actually argues against telling the judge to move his/her ass.

I understand what you said, about your folks being able to save up money, but all of it--the emotional damages, the stress, financial impacts, and LEGAL FEES from this dragging on forever...man.

Normally an appeal such as ours should take 6-12 months. Ours started in January 2018. My uncle announced he was appealing and the judge wanted to know dates when everyone was able to meet in court. My uncle said (I don't believe him) that he didn't have time for the next 4 months. So that was the first delay. Then the judge ordered us to see if we could get to an agreement, which also takes times and was bombed by my uncle. As I said the current delay is probably because the court has a big backlog of cases. Over the last years, maybe decade, the courts have had a lot of budget cuts, so there aren't enough judges and other personnel to get every case through the courts quickly and I believe every court in the country has some sort of backlog.

Also, we've had several court cases, not just this one, over the years. This must be the fifth or sixth. The topic vary; the conservatorship (?) of my uncle, the will, my uncle right to sell the house, etc. It isn't just one case that's taking so long. Some court cases overlapped, but most were consecutive.

As I said, our lawyer thinks it might be detrimental to our case if ask/tell to get the judge to get a move on. If the delay is due to backlogs it's also useless.

I know, I read what you said about your lawyer's advice. I'm just...surprised by it, that's all and those of us who've been here a long time are familiar with everything you've been through--we feel for you and your parents, etc.
